On-board with the Blue Angels

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano

The Blue Angels, due to touch down at Boeing Field any minute now ahead of their Seafair performance this weekend, are impressive from the outside. But what must it be like inside one of those Boeing F/A-18 Hornets as it pulls into a high-speed turn?

To get a sense of the extremes these top pilots go through, check out this video. It's from's Page2, via YouTube. Editor Sheldon Spencer went on a ride with the Angels and paid for it with a distorted face and brush with unconsciousness.

We'll watch from the ground, thanks.
